To command is to serve, nothing more and nothing less.
Leadership is influence.
John C. Maxwell
To have long term success as a coach or in any position of leadership, you have to be obsessed in some way.
There are three essentials to leadership: humility, clarity and courage.
All of the great leaders have had one characteristic in common: it was the willingness to confront unequivocally the major anxiety of their people in their time. This, and not much else, is the essence of leadership.
John Kenneth Galbraith
Leadership is lifting a person’s vision to high sights, the raising of a person’s performance to a higher standard, the building of a personality beyond its normal limitations.
You don’t lead by pointing and telling people some place to go. You lead by going to that place and making a case.
Effective leadership is not about making speeches or being liked; leadership is defined by results not attributes.
Great leaders are not defined by the absence of weakness, but rather by the presence of clear strengths.
Leadership is unlocking people’s potential to become better.
